. and one of the most important expressions of that will be elections next year. i encouraged that iraq pass an election law and that that moves forward so that people understand that when they have differences they can express them politically, as opposed to through violence. [speaker translates] i also appreciated the efforts that prime minister maliki has made recently to restore stronger relationships with its neighbors, including kuwait and turkey and some of the other gulf states, and expressed my interest in providing whatever support is necessary to make sure that iraq is working cooperatively and effectively with its neighbors. [speaker translates] >> we spent considerable amount of time talking about syria, where the spillover effects of the chaos and assad's horrific treatment of his own people has had spillover effects in iraq as well.

that their elected representatives understand that keeping us safe and knowing what's being done in our name are part and parcel of the same thing as long as members of congress think that they will lose e elections if they raise questions about intelligence programs. they won't raise the hard questions. >> there have been a lot of talk about the damage that's been done to intelligence gathering. do you agree that these published reports have really damaged u.s. intelligence? >> well, what they have really damaged is relations with our allies, and at some level, there is a certain amount of hypocracy in that because what i do, or the administration folks are absolutely right about is everyone spies on everyone else with every tool they have available to them. but there there has always been a certain level of trust and of denyability, that embarrassing fact wasn't going to come out in public. number one, it came out in public, and, number 2, the u.s. has tools and ability to do this that maybe not all of our allies do with the met a data. it's going to be politically much more difficult for our europ
are disappointed is the wrong word but furious by the fact that the democratically elected president has been deposed, will there be many nations in the region, many people internationally who wish for things to change further, for the military to take a back seat once again, given that it happened when it did? >> certainly in the international community and particularly in the west, there's broad support for military returning to the barracks and not running the country. but unfortunately the ability for the international community to affect that outcome is very, very limited. it was therefore the most likely institution to respond when morsi lost control. i think that's really the important point to america here that this is -- to make here: that this is not just the point of morsi being a bad president or noninclusive president but who lost control during his final months of power. when a president loses control, there are no really happy endings and this is one of those unhappy endings that we are witnesses. >> we thank you very much indeed. >> thank you for having me. >> not to block sup
it longer. that would make for one-third less campaigns and elections, all of the expenses associated with that. i'll hang up listening. guest: one of the projects that we have under way at the bipartisan policy center is a democracy project, we call it the democracy project which we launched earlier this year where we are looking into the specific issues that you mentioned, jack, as it relates to government filibusters, campaign finance the issues of redistricting out there. first of all, i think i agree with you, jack, this is more than just spending and revenues. structure. some of the issues that have created difficulties and coming to agreements going forward. at the same time, jack, i guess i'm an old senate staffer, i'm going to have to disagree with you on the filibuster. i do believe that the great deliberative body here called the united states senate, that the filibuster does have a role to play. think our founding fathers made it very clear they expected to be these kinds of conflicts but expected that the passions of the house would be cooled by the senate as george washi
and february. and probably one more round, again, before we get to the next election. so there's a long ways to go, but, you know, i think obama, you know, i don't like to get too caught up in any given poll, but this is a pretty big drop for him. and it shows his unfavorable number going up pretty high, and i think there's just been a round of things that haven't played his thing. even like the syria thing. today we have the news that they're actually getting to the destruction of chemical weapons in syria. some of the equipment. >> it's incredible. >> seems like a win, but yet that whole episode didn't really work out for him politically. in a scandal. the obama care stuff. he's taking on a lot of weight right now politically. >> okay. joy, far from learning their lesson, today the senate gop used filibuster rules to block two of the president's nominees. one on housing, and the other appeals court judge nominee patricia millert, a woman even ted cruz has cited for her, i'm quoting mr. cruz, fine professional credentials. so i guess no matter the president nominated her, that's it, she's n
what it's an anomaly in the world. to have elections on a tuesday. why would they do that? tuesday nobody shows up. >> rose: that's another -- >> it's a big deal -- >> rose: i'm all with you on that the too. not on tuesday or not necessarily -- a whole lot of things you can do to make the system better. i'm thinking of a whole number of places. there are whole tons of parties in israel for example but they are essentially to three parties, you know. >> yes. >> rose: i mean the labor and -- run for a while and that's down. they've got a series of small religious parties who simply form coalitions. >> israel is a peculiar place but mexico for example we have five parties at least. >> rose: it's hard to talk to mexico when you have one party that dominated mexico for most of its history. >> until it changed and now we have a lot. ha ha ha. >> rose: so is mexico better under preparty. >> it's definitely better now with competition. because you can choose, you know. hillary say well, this thing about the government grid lock should be a lesson for americans so that they put attenti
